Efficient Temporary Staffing with Online Recruiting

There are several advantages of temporary staffing as opposed to fixed full time jobs, especially in today's economy. It may be more convenient to hire a full time staff, but businesses today might not have the budget for that, and instead can only hire workers for a short amount of time. Online recruiting for temporary staffing, however, isn't always straightforward, as different job candidates have different goals and expectations.

A recent Smart Manager article discusses the benefits of temporary staffing. The article explains that the most important aspect of temporary staffing is flexibility, or rather that temporary staffing can be changed and fixed so that it can fit any business' need in any industry. According to the article,  this level of flexibility has made temporary staffing an ideal solution in several industries today:
"For countless organisations, there are many benefits to using temporary staffing.  The most obvious is that you can reduce overall payroll expenses by adding staff only when needed. Companies such as hotels, restaurants and entertainment venues are obvious examples, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Today there are temps in accounting, HR, marketing, logistics, administration and the list goes on - companies in almost every sector can use temps to their advantage."
Just like not all job candidates are alike in their job expectations, not all businesses are alike in their staffing needs. Some businesses have steady revenue streams throughout the year while other businesses have hyper-concentrated busy seasons, and therefore only need employees for a short period of time.

The most important aspect of temporary staffing when it comes to online recruiting is to make sure you and your job candidates are on the same page. Candidates searching for full time jobs should be informed of the temporary nature of the job in a straightforward way. Job candidates searching for a seasonal job however, will be the perfect fit for your company.
